Help & Shelter was founded in 1995 to work against all types of violence, especially domestic and sexual violence and child abuse.We have become a leader in the fight against violence in Guyana and in the provision of services to victims/survivors. Our work is widely recognised and in the 2011 national honours list we were awarded a Medal of Service. On this website you can find information about Help & Shelter and the work we do, including counselling, public education and advocacy and our shelter for abused women and their children.



The resources, including our manuals and public education materials, may be freely downloaded and distributed but we would be grateful if you would acknowledge Help & Shelter in any derived works. In addition to making use of this website, you can follow us on Facebook.
